Hotel Jan Brito

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First issue was...hotel safes are not working and not secure. Took about 12 hours to resolve that problem. (Staff got working safe the next morning)...then no hot water for shower. The hotel claimed to know about the hot water, but never informed us of the situation. Spoke to the attendant about hot water issue at 10:30 pm and gave upgrade to another room....asked for adjustment for breakfast....{no} managment not available for conversation. So me and my wife needed to pack up our belongings and move to another room {at 11.00pm) only to check out 7 hours later. Check out my other postings on this site.....this is one one the only negitive one I ever posted. Not satisfied of overall value with this hotel. Management was available to upgrade but not to discuss other issues....unacceptable in my opinon. Find another option is what I would sugest. We will never be back...

Position good, Reception staff very good. Breakfast on first day both heated trays were cold! Thought we were just unlucky!! Second day COLD again! For the money paid there should have been no problem with the heated trays!!!!! Shame not a good start to the day.

We love the jan Brito. Beautiful old building, worth asking for room in old house eg rooms 10 to 18. Great breakfast too. Hotel is in a great spot too, 2 mins walk to Berg. Stayed here 5 times, we’ll be back.

The building has 17th century origins with lots of period details, but is comfortable and very modern in the right places. Our room was in one of the gables with a huge high beamed ceiling, but the bathroom was new, modern and spotless. There is a delightful small garden at the back, and a brand new sauna and steam room that you book for a private session, and a small gym too. Breakfast was a lovely and substantial buffet, and the surroundings like eating in an elegant national trust tea room. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location great for wandering in Bruges, seeing the sights, and finding nearby restaurants. We bought an excellent guide book from hotel reception (5€) and did the self guided walks. Recommend this hotel and would return.

This hotel surpassed all of my expectations. The bedroom was large with beautiful high ceilings and exposed beams. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. And my word, the bathroom was absolutely amazing. It’s nice to be able to have a bath while away, the shower was also wonderful.

OKish experience overall, however I have had higher expectations and would not write letters home about this place. The building historic architecture interesting but a newer interior represents sort of a kitschy and cheap hit and miss decor in common areas. Our room with no view on the ground floor was nothing special with furniture suited to American grannies. Sauna/hamam quite nice but again does not suit the rest, a metal kind of a caravan box artificially tucked in between the walls of the historic building. Good breakfast served in a room with a view.

Located only 200m from a large underground car park and next to the Astropark the hotel is in a great location about 10 mins walk from the market square. We stayed in the newer building in an attic room and it was warm cosy with modern decor but original features. Breakfast in the morning is good with continental and cooked breakfast items available. Staff provide a warm welcome and were very friendly. Only reason not a five star rating is that there was a little mildew around the tiles in the bathroom. Other than that very clean and comfy stay.

Our room was a good size and the beams added something. Everything was clean and we had fresh tea and coffee daily (although the free coffee was pretty gross). We didn't actually have breakfast or eat at the hotel so can't comment on that. The location was really good too - handy to access all of Bruges.

We have been staying at this hotel at least once a year for around 20 years. In recent years it has new owners, & unfortunately it is not for the best. The various redecorations are not really in keeping with the history, & the owners do not seem to like their guests - they will walk past them without saying hello, & are quite arrogant. The final straw came today when we received an email saying that we had left something in our room when we left yesterday, & they are willing to return it to us for a €10 admin fee plus postage!! Is this the way to treat regular valued guests? Maybe we are not valued, just regular.....but maybe we will not be regular guests anymore after this!

Price quality more than perfect. Very good located . The hotel is very well maintained , We loved the hospitality and the luxurious historical interior. Breakfast good value for money. The garden is beautiful and great to relax after a day of visiting the beautiful city of Bruges.
